Chris Coleman: Let me talk about each one of those players individually.
Wabissa Bede is a better on-ball defender than Justin Robinson. Not only does he provide an on-ball defensive upgrade when he’s in the game, but his additional minutes give Robinson more rest, which in turn makes Robinson a slightly more effective defender. He can play harder for longer stretches thanks to Bede’s increased minutes.
PJ Horne may only be 6-foot-5, but he is more athletic than Kerry Blackshear. In fact, in terms of pure athleticism, it’s not even a comparison. Horne is closer to Chris Clarke than Blackshear. Horne can also step out and shoot the three-pointer (as can Blackshear), so there really isn’t a dropoff in terms of skill. I’m looking forward to next season when Khadim Sy returns. He can back up Blackshear at the five, and Horne will have a chance to play his more natural position at power forward. We could see Horne and Blackshear on the court together at times next season.
I don’t think Tyrie
